Key Quotes

“We look for a 1.3% m/m decline in August durable goods orders (market at -2.3% m/m), with ex-transport orders slipping a smaller 0.5% m/m (consensus at +0.1% m/m). Core orders are expected to weaken 0.3% m/m. August new home sales are nevertheless likely to show a 2.5% m/m increase to 520K as weekly jobless claims edge up to 272K from 264K.”

“Yellen will deliver a lecture at UMass Amherst at 5:00pm ET, likely striking a tone similar to that seen in her post-FOMC press conference. The $29B 7yr note auction will wrap up the week’s supply calendar, with the relative richness of 7s potentially weighing modestly on demand. Averages nevertheless suggest a stop 0.1bps through the screens as the buy side takes a solid 65% of the sale.”
